Estelle Chunky is a great value yarn (chunky-weight cousin to Estelle Worsted), created for Estelle in honour of their 40th anniversary in 2016. Here is Estelle's vision for this line, shared on their blog: "We were aiming for the kind of yarn that could be a staple in any knitter’s stash, knitting bag or local yarn store. A yarn that knitters and crocheters will continue to ask for in their local yarn store forty years down the road from now. The kind of yarn that will produce blankets, sweaters and mittens that will continue to be worn, loved and cared for another forty years after that."
Ball Weight: 100 g / 3.5 oz

Hardwearing and soft, this yarn is ideal for blankets, like the free Picots and Points Baby Blanket pattern by Estelle. It is inspired by chevrons, but features sections of garter stitch texture to add interest.
